App of the week for journalists – DropVox, for saving audio to Dropbox

November 30th, 2011Posted by in App of the Week

App of the week: DropVox

Operating systems: Apple (iPhone, iPod Touch and iPad)

Cost: £1.49

What is it and how is it of use to journalists? DropVox is a voice recorder that automatically saves your audio to your Dropbox account, a free service that allows you to store files and access them from any device.

 

DropVox provides a simple voice recorder which saves to Dropbox as you press the stop button, allowing you to record another memo or interview while your audio is saving.

The advantage for journalists is the ability to record an interview on a phone or iPad and then access the audio from any computer.

Unfortunately it does not record broadcast quality audio and the iPhone’s own voice memo will give far better sound despite also recording as an m4a.

DropVox uploads best via a wireless connection but short interviews can be transferred by 3G.

Reviews: It gets five stars in iTunes App Store.
